At first glance, the story told within Fairchild’s novel In Search of Lucy might seem like any ordinary coming-0f-age tale. Granted, our heroine here is the ripe old age of 30. But with a childhood as difficult as hers (an alcoholic mother, missing father, deceased step-father, etc.), Lucy had to grow up fast and thus, it’s understandable that she’d wind up in such a downward spiral at her age. It’s too much to ask for one woman to handle.

But handle it, Lucy does. And in handling things, she also formed a very maternal relationship with her younger sister Katie, who grew up and basically abandoned her to live her own life. When it turns out that Katie now needs Lucy in her life again (in a big, bad way, too), what will the trusty older sister do?

In Fairchild’s debut novel, Lucy is a sympathetic main character who brings you on a journey of growth and development right along with her. On the way to help save her sister’s life in Texas, Lucy learns a lot about herself, some new friends, and a budding relationship she left behind her in LA. What unfolds is organic, honest, and very compelling.
